Really cheap prices. Really fast service. Very friendly staff. Food was very tasty and fresh. This is going to be the go to place for a quick lunch and margaritas at night. Give it a try, you will be surprised.

It was a toss up between Buffalo Wild Wings and this place. Wings would have been better. Service was ok but food was very blah. I haven eaten a lot of Mexican but this was just not that good. Enchiladas with corn tortilla and green sauce was not a combination. I would suggest going elsewhere.

I am stunned to see that so many have given this place such high reviews. We were a party of four and we all found the meal less than good. For starters, the menu was rather limited, not a lot to pick from. I decided on chicken mole and expecting something yummy. I was turned off when I took my... More

I stumbled onto this restaurant by accident- it was one of the best Mexican meals I've ever had (!) There's nothing fancy to the space, and it's in a rather crowded strip mall. I was completely unprepared for how much I loved the food! The salsa that came with the chips at the table was PERFECT- flavorful with just enough... More

This isn't what I'd consider a Mexican restaurant. We order a variety of dishes and the only ones that tasted decent were the fajitas. The margaritas were weak and bland, the quesadillas were smothered in cheese and didn't taste good, the enchiladas were mushy. I wouldn't recommend this place until it fixes it's menu and raises the standard of food.... More

Our favorite Mexican restaurant in St. Charles. Don't know why anyone goes to the ones that put the exact same sauce over the exact same meat and just call it enchiladas, burritos, etc. We love the pork and it is always tender, never fatty, and has been slow cooking in the sauce. Delicious.

We came into the restaurant as first timers. We sat at the bar to watch tv, the staff was very friendly and attentive, even let us change the channel on the tv! They were very busy but all keep smiles and worked very well together. I got the enchiladas and they were so good with their red sauce! I enjoyed... More

The service was okay, the waiter was nice but got someones drink wrong. The frozen margarita was not blended well enough, it couldn't be drank through the straw. I don't even think there was any tequila in the other margarita, couldn't taste it at all. The food wasn't that great, I've had much better. Menu isn't very big, not much... More

I think that this restaurant is a little over-rated. I agree that the salsa and chips are excellent (deserving of the "5" rating); the chile relleno was also excellent ("4" or "5"). The rest of the meal, however, were mediocre (burrito; tortillas; rice & beans; "salad"). Service was decent; ambience was satisfactory; prices were cheap.
